Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: A Question of 1967....

A few particular 1967 favorites that imo are essential, along with favorites already suggested, are:

Viola Lee Blues from August 4

Alligator from August 5

(the legendary O'Keefe Center - Toronto, Canada shows)

The sound quality is what it is, the performances make up for it, grin and bear it - as most of us '60s cats do.

If you want both beauty and perfection from 1967 (besides the excellent ones already listed elsewhere in other posts),
go for the first 4 songs from November 11, the Shrine in L.A. -

As I wrote in the review, "Blistering solos throughout Lovelight and Schoolgirl", and Death Don't Have No Mercy is top shelf as well.
Then the audio quality drops down a notch, though the performances are solid silver.

Turn it up!
